At least three loud blasts were heard and three clouds of smoke could be seen in the sky above the centre of Saudi Arabia’s capital Riyadh on Wednesday, according to Reuters witnesses.

Saudi Arabia’s air defence forces intercepted at least three ballistic missiles fired at Saudi cities by Yemen’s Houthis, who claimed to have targeted the defence ministry in Riyadh and a Saudi Aramco distribution facility in Najran on Wednesday.

Three rockets were intercepted in the capital and the southern cities of Jizan and Najran, according to state media and the Saudi-led coalition fighting the Iran-aligned Houthis in Yemen.
